What could a hotheaded, West China working class laborer and a celebrated, high-society physician have in common? Ten years after a murder investigation that he was never able to resolve, a Chongqing detective is determined to find out. In this riveting tale of morality, class, revenge and guilt that is reminiscent of Hitchcock’s classic Strangers on a Train, the three men circle each other in a twisted web of intrigue, lies and violence.
In only his second feature, director-to-watch Xiaofeng Li brilliantly employs the crime/film noir genre to craft a superbly suspenseful, visually stunning and enticing thriller about the mysterious and dangerous lengths that people will go to in order to protect their deepest and darkest secrets.
